Introduction
Thank you for choosing the Internet Camera. This Internet Camera sends live video
through 10/100Mbps wired network to a web browser or camera viewer across Internet
anywhere in the world! This compact, self-contained unit lets you keep an eye on your home,
your kids, and your workplace—whatever’s important to you.
How does the Camera do all of this? Unlike standard “web cams” that require an
attached PC, the Internet Camera can connect directly to a network. The MJPEG video
compression produces a high quality, high-frame rate, 640 x 480 video stream.
The included Camera Viewer utility lets you record the video to your local hard drive,
“live” or on a predetermined schedule.
Use the instructions in this Guide to help you integrate the Camera into your network.
These instructions should be all you need to get the most out of the Internet Camera.
